Step 1 # Trim Size & Page Setup

Most kids’ books are 8.5 x 11 inches, therefore, I will keep the same trim size for this demo book. Just head over to and click on Create a Design, then select Custom Size, and enter page width as 8.5 inches and height as 11 inches. Then hit Create a new design as shown below;

Now you will need to change the text to a coloring page by using Text effects in Canva. Just select the text and click on the “Effects” option. It will open a new effect panel towards the left side. You need to select the “Hollow” effect to change text into a colorable text as shown below;

Next, you can duplicate the text by clicking and dragging, and then change the second text layer as “ONE” as shown below. By doing so, you will have a very simple coloring page for kids.

Step 4 # Repeating Step 1 to 3

Next, you can duplicate this page and change the text layers to create more pages. Like I have created a 2nd coloring page number by changing the text only.

In this way, you can create very simple coloring books for kids and toddlers using Canva. For example, if you want to create a coloring book kids letters then you can create a copy of this design by going to the File menu and clicking on the “Make a copy” option.

For example, I have created a simple ABC Coloring Book page by using the exact same method. The only difference is, this time I have added the image of an apple by going to the “Elements” tab.
